At Colorado State University I did a concentration in Fiber Arts. In these studios I learned how to work with bleach, fiber-reactive dye and acid dye. I studied embroidery, applique and reverse applique. I work on 4 and 8 harness looms, weaving a variety of different textiles from plain weave to shadow weave to tapestry. I have screen printed with pigment and dye paste.I explored dye painting extensively because it allows you to work with your garment as your canvas.
